Camp Broadway Highlights 2016
Each summer since 1995, over 30,000 kids from all over the country have attended Camp Broadway’s 5-day signature program, working with industry professionals direct from Broadway in an authentic Broadway rehearsal process to perform classic numbers from Broadway’s most beloved shows. This summer, Camp Broadway celebrated its 21st summer of connecting Broadway professionals with theater-loving kids in New York City and around the country. Below is a peek into the rehearsal process and once-in-a-lifetime moments that children experience in a week of Camp Broadway. See our favorite moments from camp in 2016 , including celebrating Camp Broadway’s Special Drama Desk Award win with our campers, meeting the kids of SCHOOL OF ROCK, and performing hits from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Legally Blonde the Musical.
This spring, Camp Broadway was honored with a Special Drama Desk Award for playing a crucial role in creating tomorrow’s audiences. We sent our award to our 12 camp cities so our campers could share in this occasion.
All week long, campers work with our staff of directors, choreographers, and music directors who all have extensive Broadway and National Tour credits. They are leaders and master teachers who are successful in translating the traditions and standards known to professionals on Broadway into age-appropriate programs that are relevant and inspirational for aspiring amateur thespians.
NYC CB’ers had a special workshop with Something Rotten’s Ryan Vandenboom, and learning the showstopping number, “Welcome to the Renaissance”.
The young performers of Broadway’s School of Rock visited for a special Q&A, telling our campers what it’s like to be a kid on Broadway.
On Friday, family and friends are invited to watch the Camp Broadway Family Finale in the 756-seat Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space.
Over the course of 5 days, campers take part in both Camp Broadway, and Broadway traditions, from the Camp Broadway Medley to the Gypsy Robe Ceremony.
Campers rehearse all week to perform highlights from two popular Broadway Musicals. In 2016, campers performed Legally Blonde the Musical and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
